I'm on my second pair of these tires. It's my second set for a good reason, the first pair performed up to all expectations. I got a little over 12000 miles out of the first set which is about 50% more than I originally expected. I only had limited rain exposure but even then they were very, very good. I'm not a racer type but do a lot of sports touring on a BMW K bike. You won't be sorry with these Bridgestones and the price paid was quite fair.
This is my second pair, I loved the first set. Great dry traction, very good wet traction and way more milage out of them than originally expected. I was looking for about 8000 miles but got a bit over 12000 added to the great traction these are terrific deal.. I'm not a racer type but do a lot of sports touring. Very satisfied and the price I got for a set was very fair.
Everything I've read says these will be great tires. My only complaint is that Dennis Kirk sent me a tire that was over a year old and one that was 10 months old. I hope that it doesn't affect the performance or longevity.
